to a gathering of cardinals in latin. citing his age, pope benedict said to do his work both strength of mind and body are necessary and that his have deteriorated "to the extent that i have to recognize my incapacity to fulfill the ministry entrusted to me." vatican sources said the pope had been considering his resignation for some time, but the clerics who heard it were still taken by surprise according to bishop oscar sanchez. "we were all stunned" he said. "all the cardinals looked atll each other and that was it.ook we asked for a last blessing." but perhaps they should have seen it coming. benedict has been in failing health for some time and had previously said he would consider resigning if he felt he could no longer carry on. but vatican officials said no specific medical condition prompted the resignation. vatican spokesman father federico lombardi said the pope acted with what he called "great freedom and clarity." >> we will continue to love him and to receive his love. >> reporter: benedict is one of the oldest popes to be elected at the age of 78 in 2005 and he had to cope with
up of so-called developed countries unlike latin america in the '80s and '90s and asia in the late 1990s that any of the lessons that a lot of the people in this audience learned, you know, from those two crises and other ones in turkey and -- i could run on, east and central europe -- were not valid for them. because they were so-called developed economies. and so what i thought i would do here is just run through some of the lessons that we learned there that i think, you unfortunately, should have been looked at by the europeans. and they're only now starting to realize that they could have cut down this present negative situation because, let's face it, europe as a whole with a few exceptions is in either recession or stagnation. first, each country is unique and a cookie cutter approach does not work. this is something they didn't want to see. obviously, greece got into a situation by longtime mismanagement on the fiscal side, dragged the banks in. in the case of ireland, it was the banks that dragged sovereign in, much different i. wilbur is an expert on that. in the case of
black pope, and the first -- there are those from latin america as well. after that bill is where it gets interesting. not since gregory the 12th in 1416 have they had a situation where there is a former pope and a pope. so the many people are asking about what the role of the pope will be once he steps down. it's my understanding he will not go into seclusion, according to his aid he'll live in a cloistered monastery in the very back of vatican city, and he'll continue to write. the question remains if he has a matter on doctrine about which he writes and the new hope whomever he may be has a different thought, whether there might be some sort of division within the church. they say they are not concerned about this at all, this is not a man who has ever sought political power or anything like that and they believe that he will just write and pray and live out his days in a monastery in the back of vatican city. that will be something that no one of course has seen in many centuries, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of concern about it around here e. says according to his aides
brief announcement in latin, benedict set a modern precedent that ensures his successors can follow the same both. as one put it, he broke a taboo. catholics around the world reacted with surprise, some sadness, but overall there was a sense that benedict had done the right thing for himself and the church. >> it is an act of humility for the pope to realize that he can no longer physically and mentally discharge the duties of his office. >> reporter: even as benedict's legacy is being debated, the struggle for succession has begun behind the scenes. [ cheers ] >> reporter: latin americans feel their time has come, and there are several strong candidates including cardinal leandro sandri of argentina. the region is home to 42% of the world's catholics, and the church needs a bulwark against gains making by even evangelical christians. africa has the fastest growing catholic population. cardinal peter turkson, who is only 64, tops many lists to be the first black pope. the strongest european candidate may be italian cardinal scola. there's a front-runner in north america, mark willet
it in latin and it was definitely unexpected. his last day will be february 28th. right now we are standing in front of st. mary's cathedral. we are hoping to get comment from them a little bit letter this morning. even given his old age and ailing help, you normally don't see popes step down. the last time it happened was nearly 600 years when pope gregory xii resigned. he did so to end the civil war within the church. pope benedict emphasized that carrying out the duties of being pope the leader of more than a billion roman catholics requires strength which he simply doesn't have anymore. after having repeatedly examed my conscious before god, i have come to the certainty that my strength due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise. pope benedict the 265th pope was born in 1927 as joseph in germany. he was forced into the hitler's youth at age 14. he served in the army but was desserted. he led the church since 2005 through a time that has seen him criticized for the handling of the parishioners of church. this really sets the stage for a conclave to elect a new po
